  1. The side braces are a considerable improvement, Dynamat in the dog house not so much. I personally wouldn't have another pair of LaScala's without braces and some version of the DJK port mod. H.B.
  2. I know its an old thread, but here is a set of helmet headphone I found to be quite good when installed correctly. IASUS Premium Audio Motorcycle Helmet Speakers
  3. Seems like a step in the wrong direction, but let your ears be the judge. I have seen several posts where someone preferred type As with set amps in the proper environment. What I don't know is a lot. HB.
  4. Very creative, curious how it turns out. HB.
  5. Have a pair of K77 square magnets 1 has original Diaphragm the other has a replacement diaphragm. Original sounds better than the replacement. Not a matched set $60 for the pair
  6. No longer available
  7. Magnificent Enough said. H.B.
  8. Not to tough, I fully assemble the horn then sand from the mouth to the throat with 36-40 grit until smooth, then clean up with 80grit. After the horn is sealed, I think I finished with 150 grit. H.B.
  9. Never hear a Coaxial I really enjoyed, but apparently just not hear the right set up yet. H.B.
  10. I know the Eliptrac 400 kit is still available, I think the Eliptrac hf is still available as well. Just saw a post about Them yesterday.
  11. Mini Punch is a really nice speaker. I believe JWC released the design a while back for personal use. Try a google search for JWC Mini Punch. H.B.
  12. Keep up the nice work. BTW, Eliptrac's are still available in kit form only. H.B.
  13. I am glad you found something you like. HB
  14. Belles are coming along fantastic. Very nice work. Not sure what you are doing with the Eliptrac, but I will check in later to see. HB
  15. I wouldn't pay 5k for a rebuild, but I have seen his work, it is very nice. HB
  16. A lot of chefs involved now. I will bow out. I will say the ALK crossover uses a swamping resistor, so basically doesn't care what impedance mid range is used, and therefore should not change the crossover point. My only thought was maybe the crossover was wired wrong. I have done it, everyone makes an error from time to time. HB.
  17. Thats because the rest of us have hearing loss.. HB
  18. 3015 LF is an 8 ohm driver, DCR is 5.5 ohms. A quick look at the specs shows, the 3015 is not a good match for your Cornwall cabs. With no labeling, I am suspect also. The Eminence 15c is very close to the original K-33 and is a suitable replacement. I would consider replacing the woofer with an Eminence 15c or one from Bob Crites. Again I doubt the crossover is the issue, the circuit is fairly simple. If you can post a pic of the crossover, might be able to spot a flaw. HB
  19. In the pics, I don't see a rear panel brace. It is critical on the Cornwall to have a brace for the back panel. In the original Cornwall the K600 and K-55 served as a brace, with your mod I no longer see anything supporting the back panel. Furthermore I don't think the added depth was necessary, as I recall the Cornwall cab was a bit too large to meet the TS requirements of the woofer. Here is a quick plot of original Cornwall with 15c Yellow, then subtracted volume for larger horn Green, then added 1 inch to box depth with subtracted horn volume Blue. There is minimal change. HB
  20. Do you have the original crossovers? If so, may want to reinstall them as a test. The woofer typically dictates the speakers efficiency. If the oem woofers have been re-used, it is unlikely the efficiency has changed. The issue may be a mis-built crossover, though I have never had one from ALK. HB
